    Default Resident visa under partnership APPROVED

    Hi All

    My partner and I are over the moon to know that my resident visa under partnership got approved. So grateful of this forum. The different stories of the members here helped me a lot to make things right and I used as a guide on my application.

    I arrived in New Zealand October 2016 and applied for my residency on October 2017. My timeline is:

    25 October 2017 - Lodgement Date
    17 November 2017 - Medical received as well as immigration levy fee was deducted from the credit card
    13 February 2018 - CO emailed me and asked for the original police certificate, replied to CO and told her that original police certificate was already submitted on my previous work visa under partnership
    22 February 2018 - Online status approved and AIP letter received on my email.

    All the best to all other members waiting for the results of their application.

    Cheers!

    Thank you, nrlfth. My application was submitted and received at Manukau Branch. And I reckon it was processed in Hamilton coz CO's address showing Immigration New Zealand - Hamilton Branch.

    Regarding the request for an original police certificate? We will be doing our criminal record checks for the FBI all online. They’ve changed the process now and people from outside of the US that maybe lived in the US for a while cannot do everything online . My understanding is the report would be still an electronic version . Is that still not sufficient for the case officer?

    I'd recommend using an FBI Approved Channeler, rather than going directly through the FBI. We used http://www.coloradofingerprinting.com, but there are others you can use as well. You will get your FBI Identity History Summary Check (police certificate) in just a couple of weeks. We received both an electronic copy, and a hard copy, which we submitted in the original sealed envelope to INZ and had no issues.
